Ballyhoo crunch time crafting

If I've learned nothing else from Rachael Ray, I am thankful for the brilliance of the garbage bowl.


It has come in very handy lately with my crunch time crafting, which I was hoping to avoid (thanks flu!). I love throwing my strings and teeny tiny scraps in it. That way they're easily contained and easy to toss when I'm ready to take a trip to the trash can.


Here is a quick shot of a few wallets basking in the sunlight. Aren't they pretty? These are going straight to the fair this weekend. Do not pass go, do not go to etsy. I just don't have the time.

Colorado kids should come visit Melissa (my sidekick this Saturday) and I in Denver this weekend.


There's going to be all kinds of fun stuff going on, like a cake walk (!!!), demonstrations, materials swap, and all kinds of creative goodness. I hope to see some of you there! :D

The Garbage Bowl is a great idea! I have threads and stuff everywhere. I always use a bowl in the kitchen for scraps and peelings so now I'll use one for cratfing too! Good luck this weekend, the wallets look great!x
